Description Change this

House in Motoyawata is a minimal home located in Ichikawa, Japan, designed by NAYA Architects. The two-storey building sits on a total site area is 75 sqm, and the structure is made mostly of wood. The home is incredibly narrow, and sports a spiral staircase to get between floors.

The building is so closely surrounded by apartment blocks that its walls have to lean away from them. Has double doors inset on a small first floor terrace to let more light past the neighbouring block and into the living room.
